After the Devastation: Helping Japan and the Pacific Region

It’s been pretty intense for the last several months around the world, and the earthquake and subsequent tsunamis in Japan definitely add to the drama—and human suffering. While its still too early to assess the toll, the devastation is pretty clear. So we’re asking our PR brethren to help. Of course, there are already numerous articles online warning of charity scams, but here’s a couple of stalwarts you can count on when making a donation:

Salvation Army: To donate, visit the organization’s website at, call (800) SAL-ARMY, or text the word “Quake” or “Japan” to 80888 to donate $10.

American Red Cross: Text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation, or go to
